  • Click the RECORD button when you are ready to capture from your screen.

 

While in record mode, whatever you select or manipulate on your screen is recorded.

The Desktop Recorder also gives you Drawing Options to scribble on your screen or highlight specific areas.  To display the palette for the Drawing Options, use the Macintosh Dock or the Windows Taskbar to select the Desktop Recorder application that is running in the background (it's the many-colored sunburst icon).

Onscreen buttons or keyboard shortcuts allow you to stop recording.

 

After recording is stopped, an editor opens, allowing you to trim and title your screen recording before saving and uploading your finished file.

Uploading your recording is the final step.  The upload is sent to your collection of content in MY MEDIA.  This is your personal storage space for video and audio files within MediaSpace and is the same storage available in Canvas, the campus learning management system for online courses.

After the editing is complete (and you have clicked the DONE button), you will be presented with a window labeled "Upload Options."
